Rebellion have revealed the launch date for Zombie Army 4: Dead War, with the latest game in their pulpy co-op zombie shooter set to claw its way out of the grave and be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 4th February 2020.
Having thought the driving menace of Hitler’s zombie army was vanquished at the end of Zombie Army Trilogy, Zombie Army 4 revives the danger once more, calling your band of brave heroes to battle through a corpse-filled Venice, a zombie zoo and beyond. You’ll be making use of classic traps and explosives as before, but there’s now a deep progression and customisation system of skills, special attacks, weapon upgrades, cosmetics, emotes and so on.
On the whole it will hold true to the co-op shooting of the original three, but now with improved drop-in, drop-out co-op, which works from start to finish.
The co-op oriented Zombie Army series spawned as an undead spin-off from Sniper Elite V2 back in 2013 – then it was known as Nazi Zombie Army, but that doesn’t really fly with putting games in retail store – receiving a sequel and eventually a full release on console as Zombie Army Trilogy.
The game is now availabel for pre-order, with all pre-orders receiving the Undead Airman Character Pack, featuring Hector, the British Zoombie as a playable character. Rebellion have also revealed the various editions of the game you can buy.
The Collector’s Edition includes:
- The gorgeously horrifying 10” Zombie Shark Figurine

Looking back at our Zombie Army Trilogy review, I said, “Zombie Army Trilogy knows what it wants to be, a straightforward zombie sniping game that lacks any real pretensions or delusions of grandeur. Parts of the trilogy are showing their age and difficulty spikes can sap away the fun, but steel yourself for a challenge, get some mates together and there’s plenty to like about it.”
